Format: Paperback
Sylvia Senensky's "Healing and Empowering the Feminine" is an important book for our times, when much healing is needed. She likens the journey into Self to walking the labyrinth - entering, staying awhile in the centre, then re-emerging transformed - and provides classic descent myths (e.g. Innanna, Persephone, etc.) to give us extra inspiration for the path to wholeness. For the journey to the centre is a descent into the deep realms. Senensky gives us a marvellous roadmap to take with us. Do get it!

Format: Paperback
"There are two ways of entering the underworld", warns Sylvia Senensky, M.Ed., and Zurich-trained Jungian analyst practising in Toronto. "We either make a conscious choice to respond to the call like Inanna and Theseus or we can be `raped' into it the way Persephone was." We ignore the call at our peril.

In a section of Part l entitled About the Labyrinth, Senensky, a graduate of Jean Houston's training program in the Cultivation of Human Capacities, discusses the history of the labyrinth as a powerful healing agent and urges her readers to take advantage of this ancient tool. Replete with graphs and photographs, Part l of Healing and Empowering the Feminine describes the early history of labyrinths showing a variety of complicated arrangements of this ancient webwork that so accurately embodies our own circumvolution of back and forth movement to personal transformation.

It is interesting to view artwork of two labyrinths side by side, the first a simple seven circuit Cretan one from early times and the other a more complex eleven circuit Chartres labyrinth. Senensky posits the possibility that the latter one elaborates the psyche's development since primitive times. Suggesting that the labyrinth could well reflect Jung's idea of pre-existant pathways in the psyche, she points out that we actually embody labyrinthine organs such as the winding course of the brain and the circuitous intestines. An excellent labyrinthine read, it walks back and forth with us to a gentle place of strong encouragement.
